I have considered myself a serious PC gamer for well over a decade now, and I have had the opportunity to use more than my fare share of gaming mice over the last ten years. In all of that time, the one thing I have learned is that better peripherals make for a better gaming experience, more time at the top of the leaderboard, and less fatigue during long gaming sessions. For these reasons, I am very picky about what mouse gets the privilege of living on my gaming PC’s desk, and the mouse I am going to take a look at today just might be the next addition to my gaming arsenal.
Mionix says that the Castor gaming Mouse is “Setting a new standard in ergonomic comfort and gaming performance,” and says that the “Castor is named for one of the brightest stars in the night sky.” With six buttons, customizable RGB LED accent lighting, and an enhanced rubber grip provides for an extremely comfortable gaming experience.
“The Castor’s unique shape has been developed to be used by right-handed players to equally support palm, claw and fingertip-grip. The mouse has a dedicated pinky- and ring-finger support-groove which makes it extremely comfortable to hold and lift,” says Mionix. “The PMW-3310 gaming grade optical sensor has no positive or negative hardware acceleration, amazing accuracy, smooth tracking, and a maximum speed of more than 5.45m/sec (215 IPS), all the way up to 10,000DPI. It is the choice of the world’s top pro-gamers and widely considered as the best gaming sensor currently available.”
